in the 1990's was reaction to the affirmative- action case in the united states supreme court. the african-american community embraced president clinton in a way and deservedly so. he was young. he was hit. he played his saxophone on mtv. and young people, african- americans, saw somebody who would be the next generation of leaders in america. president obama, from the first time president clinton got elected, it is 20 years later. president obama comes into office -- four years ago, we were sitting here and lehman brothers had not collapsed yet. we were 13 days away from the lehman brothers collapse and our entire financial system being brought to its knees. our economy was shaken to the ground. that has been the issue that is front and center. that is what president obama is focused on. >> right here, please. >> polling is one thing and the other thing is the turnout. i just came out from colorado and you hear people talking about a silent majority. hispanics say they will vote for barack obama, if they vote. but the voter turnout may be very low. is that a problem you're seeing?

stand today on the edge of a new frontier. the frontier of the 1960's. the frontier of unknown opportunities and perils. the frontier of unfilled hopes. woodrow wilson's new freedom promised our nation a new political and economic framework. franklin roosevelt's new deal offered help to those in need. the new frontier i see is not a set of promises. it is a set of challenges. it sums up not what i intend to offer to the american people what i intend to ask of them. it appeals to their pride. [applause] it appeals to our pride. not our security. a new frontier is here whether we seek it or not. beyond that frontier are uncharted areas of science and space, unsolved problems of peace and war. problems of ignorance and prejudice. unanswered questions of poverty. it would be easier to shrink from the new frontier to look to the same mediocrity of the past, to be lulled by good intentions and high rhetoric and those who prefer that clause should not vote for me are the democratic party. but i believe that the times require imagination and courage and perseverance. i am asking each o

s diplomacy. - choosed diplomacy. iran wants to be a supplier country. they don't want to just develop their own needs. when i was there back in 2005, they edged why don't we share technology? if iran is attacked, i suspect iran can retaliate in kind. that is that every option has gone out the window. the iranian authorities know they would retaliate if attacked by israel. they would lose cities and technology but also faith from their public world opinion is not in their support. >> is probably one of the questions right now where we know sanctions are affected. but are they effective enough to get the a readiness to change their behavior or opinion? the u.s. calculation is that the sanctions against the central bank and oil sales went into effect in july. the thinking is let's see how it goes after six months. i don't think anyone knows whether sanctions are strong enough to get the iranians to change their behavior. many people feel they are not but we will see. >> i have already answered but i will take another go at this. he mentions the iranians have time on their side on
